'Snoring Swatter' Is Here To Swiftly Silence Your Noisy Bedmate

Marilisa Racco 21 Feb 2020

Do you share your bed with a snorer? Yeah, me too. It's the worst, isn't it? And no matter how many mid-night aggressive tosses and turns I make to "accidentally" get him to stop snoring, nothing tames those snores.

Snoring is terribly disruptive, but there are ways to tamper it.

Research has shown that in those whose BMI is over 30, losing weight can help stifle snoring.

But here's the kicker: it's because it will also help them lose weight in their tongue.

“Most experts have not typically focused on fat in the tongue. We now know it is a major factor,” Dr. Richard Swab, a professor of medicine at the hospital at the University of Pennsylvania, told The Sun.

Say, for example, your partner needs to lose 20 pounds. That could take anywhere from 10 to 20 weeks, or longer, to achieve.

Companies have been peddling anti-snoring products for decades.

The most popular are the Breathe Right Nasal Strips, which I can fully attest, do not work even a little bit. Or at least they didn't work for my husband.

There are also any number of gizmos that are meant to be shoved up your nose or strapped around your face.

I mean, my husband's snoring might disturb me, but I'd feel pretty bad if I made him stick things up his nose before bedtime.

And, of course, if sleep apnea is the cause of the snoring, there's the CPAP machine.

Since weight loss doesn't happen overnight, and a lot of the other anti-snoring products on the market don't work, you can try the "Snoring Swatter."

It looks exactly as it was intended to be used.

It's a fist-shaped device with a handle just long enough so that you can gently (or not so gently) nudge your bedmate.

Unfortunately, there are still no guarantees of a good night's rest.

You will undoubtedly still be roused by those snores, but you'll probably enjoy using this until the offending snorer stops.
